The Siren by Antiquity-Dreams The Siren by Antiquity-Dreams
This isn't a cosplay, this is an original design I made for a Supernatural convention costume contest. I won second place which was cool but kinda lame that it was audience pick because that meant very little actual judging on skill happened.

So this is a siren outfit and I only wish that I could have gotten all the little details picked up on camera because there were a lot.

In case you were wondering, yes that's a body suit and, yes, that's my old Neptune wig. I hand panted, tipped and shaded every one of those scales and it made me want to die a little lol. Also, the shell crown was a huge pain in the ass to make/get through the airport unharmed >.<!

I'll throw up more pictures later so you guys can get a better idea of what the whole thing looks like.

As a side note: I also designed and made :iconsupernovadobe: 's outfit and designed :iconblackfruitbat: though she made her own and it looks hella cool :3!

Photographer was :iconblackfruitbat: so massive credit to her.

I love how elegant and subtle your actual makeup is in contrast to the rest of the costume. Also, big bravo on having the patience to paint all those scales. I have wrist ache sympathy pains ;) Really nice to see a close up shot of the necklace - it works SO well! Also, that looks like moonstone in your crown?

My favorite part is my pearl necklace. If you look close enough, you can see there are little bottles attached to it. Each bottle has a different thing inside of it (frankincense, myrrh, mugwart and sage) which is just precious to me. I had a lot of fun making it... and the rest of the outfit :D! Except maybe the crown... that thing fought me tooth and nail and I got a nice burn out of it that I still remember :/. Also, The crown just has more pearls attached to the side though moonstones would have been super cool looking :3

You painted those all on? Man you're patient.
Although, if you painted them on, How do you wash it? (I'm unsure of the kind of paint you used.)

I used fabric paint so the body suit can be hand washed.
